Studying this morning's four readings from the St. James Daily Devotional Guide (click to subscribe), I examined myself with these questions. Where is your self-examination leading today?
Psalms 97:1-12. Verse 10 KJV, to obey God and hate evil as he commands here, what thoughts and actions are required of me today? Do I avoid condemning evil by name, avoid confronting it?
Isaiah 62:1-12. Verse 6, related question, how can I serve in the coming year as one of God’s watchmen on the walls? Watching for what? And then taking what action?
I John 1:1 - 2:2. Verses 3, 6, 7, what would it take for me to go deeper in fellowship with other Christ-followers in 2019?
John 21:15-25. It could be said (with understatement) that Peter broke fellowship with Jesus, and the Lord restores it here. What parallels have I experienced in my Christian life?
